From the director of FINDING MR. RIGHT comes a series of interconnected stories set against the backdrop of the early days of the pandemic. Here, individual souls realize the world is changing, sometimes yielding heartbreak, sometimes yielding happiness, but always leading to a deeper understanding of their fellow human beings. From finding love, to connecting through music, heroes emerge, each contributing in small ways to a very new world around them, however dangerous.


“The film is, it must be said, very rose-colored. But the characters are richly drawn and there's a real sense of the city under lockdown and how it affected ordinary people in the relatively innocent days before the virus became a deadly pandemic.”—David Stratton, The Australian
